He said we owe this success to our health professionals, polio workers and law-enforcement personnel who covered every inch of the country and reached out to every child with a missionary zeal, undeterred by plethora of challenges.
Thanking US government, philanthropist organizations and others for their assistance in this regard, Masood Khan said we will not lower our guards and there will be no let-up in our fight against polio.
